Any bad package should be moved out, in a sandbox or something. For quite a while now I am not able to install this one.

install: cannot stat '../smath.desktop': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build smath.

great, it worked for me also this morning. Thanks for testing.
the pkgbuild is cleaned up now and as far as I can tell the files don't even need mentioning in the source.
Should be good to go for the future and much easier to update.

thanks again for the solution.

Now uncomment the sources (make sure the braces are correct) and it is complete ;)

You can try my version from yesterday here:

It works for me with the the .desktop, i can send you a PKGBUILD if you want.

Downloading the icon pack is a bit of a problem, because this needs a different id... but i think dropbox (or adding it directly to the sources / aur repo) is fine for a simple png.

btw: i would supply the start script also as file, instead of this multiple line echo pipe trick.

That works and I can get the main file downloaded directly from the web now.
Just have to pop into a Arch irc channel one of these days to see if i can get some help to complete the PKGBUILD. I think the %u in the dlagents follows all three sources and those don't need the http post procedure yet.
Will have to find a way to fix that or change the way to get the .desktop and the icon.
So for now won't post that pkgbuild yet as it is broken.
pkg still works as it is now. looking forward to complete this though.

The server expects a HTTP POST request with the id to start the download, so:
wget --post-data "RefMem=&PostBack=CrFXM"

This works also through makepkg with the DLAGENTS variable:
DLAGENTS=('http::/usr/bin/wget --post-data RefMem=&PostBack=CrFXM %u')

because the main website obscures the download file location
This takes you to a java link to download.
If you have a suggestion more than welcome to provide input so we can improve this build.

Why downloading from Dropbox instead of the official site?

pkg version 2 now has the giflib restriction removed.

silent commented on 2016-05-27 18:23

Please remove <5.1.2 condition for giflib from the PKGBUILD
